Local Nonprofit Empowers Youth to Excel in the Game of Life
KAMS Foundation, Inc.
CHINO HILLS, CA – A local nonprofit organization focuses on empowering youth to excel in the game of life by providing affirmation and mentorship through experiential learning.
KAMS Foundation, Inc. (KAMS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, aims to inspire and empower underprivileged youth through sports while providing mentorship and educational opportunities for life skills and character development. Through this development, KAMS encourages youth to love others, dream big, be passionate, embrace confidence, and have fun.
KAMS was developed in honor of Kamran Siddiqui, a Chino Hills resident, who passed away on April 30, 2017 unexpectedly. Though he was young, his life was filled with faith, life experiences, love (life, family, children), passion (soccer being one of the biggest), big dreams, and most of all, a desire to help those less fortunate than himself.
KAMS Foundation works with youth to provide opportunities to learn life skills while empowering them with tools for character development. Affirmation and mentorship are also focused on in order to help youth grow interpersonally, emotionally and intellectually while building self confidence and self awareness. The KAMS program involves helping youth achieve competencies involved in the social and emotional learning process. KAMS’ team spends time with youth, educating and providing them with four core ideals and providing resources to aid in their
development. The learning process is facilitated through a hands-on, experiential learning environment that involves activities and the game of soccer.
“Through KAMS Foundation, we want to reflect Kamran’s heart by affirming and empowering underprivileged and marginalized youth,” stated Debbie Beck-Siddiqui, KAMS Foundation President. “KAMS aims to provide youth with the opportunity to develop positive character traits and teach them practical life skills, so that they can achieve success in every aspect of their lives.”
